Default Mono what's your preference?

I'm getting ready to strip my TLD's and spool them with mono for Dolphin, BFT's, and Hoo's. What's your mono of choice? I was thinking of putting on 30# Suffix High Vis.

Just curious as to why mono? I use braid and simply use about 150ft of topshot to allow for stretch. Depending on the size of fish and type of fishing, 30lb is pretty light.

You bring up a good point. I've just never done the topshot for trolling. Anyone else use braid with a Topshot?

I have started doing a top shot on alot of my reels strictly so i do not have to replace as much mono every year. Braid last alot longer then mono. But if you stick with mono 30# is going to be a pretty good match for the tlds depending on the size i have 30 on all my 20 25 and 30 size tlds
